The Easter season celebrates both fruity and chocolate-filled flavors in the shapes of eggs, bunnies and more, and the festivities simply aren’t the same without a super-sweet treat or two. This year, we’ve already been indulging in some classics as well as new favorites, and we’ve gathered all of the tastiest sweets in the list below.
With their rich, chocolatey centers and their extra crunchy shells, Cadbury Mini Eggs are an all-time classic—and even with the same formula, we think they taste even better in an assortment of vibrant rainbow colors.
We firmly believe that Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs are superior to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups due to the adjusted chocolate-to-peanut butter ratio, and these mini eggs are no different. They come individually foil-wrapped in a cute gift box, making them even easier to chill in the fridge for the ultimate Reese’s experience.
Why snack on boring, old-school marshmallows when you could enjoy bunny-shaped ones in gorgeous pastel colors? These new Bunny Marshmallows from Jet-Puffed have the same great flavor as the standard marshmallows but are way more fun in green, yellow, purple and pink, whether you toast them, drop them in hot chocolate or snack on them right out of the bag.
JELL-O Jelly Beans are brand new this Easter, and with their luscious, fruity flavors, they’re definitely worth a shot this year—even if you don’t usually love jellybeans. The lime, lemon and orange flavors are especially tasty, with a hint of tartness that makes them superior to your average jellybean, while the cherry and strawberry flavors will be simply irresistible to anyone who tries them.
And if you’re looking for an Easter treat on the healthier side, be sure to check out this Chocolate Dipped Birthday Cake Granola Mini Bars from MadeGood. They’re colorful and chocolatey with a flavor reminiscent of cake batter, making them perfect for the holiday while also packing loads of vitamins from hidden vegetable extracts.

Moving on to the stuff you can’t find at your local store, we have Taylor Chip and their delectable new Carrot Cake Cookies. These things are huge and delivered fresh to your home, packed with real grated carrots and warming spices before being coated in a house-made cream cheese glaze. They’re basically a handheld carrot cake—and if you want to try other cookies when you order, you have so many choices for mixing and matching.
Even if you don’t normally indulge in Peeps each Easter, these Chocolate-Dipped Easter Peeps from Compartés are a must-try. Available in both milk chocolate and dark chocolate options, these bunnies are dipped to the neck in decadent chocolate, making for an exquisite combo of chocolate and marshmallow enhanced even further by the bunnies’ crisp sugar coating.
And for those seeking a more refined take on chocolate and peanut butter, there are Compartés Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, available in a luxury gift box. It includes four handmade chocolate peanut butter sea salt eggs, with the smoothest, dreamiest peanut butter in a salted chocolate shell for a grown-up approach to a classic Easter treat.
In many countries, including France, Germany, the U.K. and Italy, massive chocolate eggs are the confection enjoyed around Easter, and this authentic Italian Dark Chocolate and Hazelnut Easter Egg from D. Barbero has us hooked. The hollow egg is made with smooth, glossy dark chocolate and embedded with full local hazelnuts to look like precious stones, making for a high-end take on a classic flavor combo. Each egg also has a hidden prize inside to make it even more exciting. The one we tasted included a pink leather keyring, complete with sweet heart charms.

And last, but certainly not least, it’s not Easter without chocolate bunnies—but these aren’t the chalky, sickly sweet grocery store bunnies you might be used to. Venchi is a fine Italian chocolate brand, and both their Milk Chocolate Bunny and their Dark Chocolate Bunny are beautifully tempered with perfectly balanced chocolate flavor, and molded into a bunny that’s way cuter than average. The bunnies are also hollow, making them easy to bite into and just the right amount for your Easter enjoyment.
